I think Sun has quite some nice goals, not sure if their are executing against them in the way they should (to win the RIA market, you should not only think developers but also designer workflow integration – something that Adobe and Microsoft are trying to do, but Sun doesn’t). And I’m really sure Flex isn’t that big of a learning curve for Java developers, the ones I’ve been working with at least all were up and running quite quickly.

Whilst on this topic, I assume AMIS will be at the NL JUG JSpring event? Would love to catch up with a few of you and your colleagues over there and discuss this in lengthy detail 😉

So his current demos use Java webstart, but that is not obligatory. That still requires the JRE to be installed on the client, but takes away the argument on Java Webstart. If you combine that with the plans of Sun to optimize the JRE loading time in version 7, then it all becomes more interesting.

The NLJUG had a private meet and greet with James Gosling. During this session JavaFx with discussed as well of course. James’ comments on JavaFx is that it’s all still in alpha fase and Sun launches it now to get feedback from the community.
